It was on December 11, 1620 that the Pilgrims set ground on Plymouth Rock.
Their first winter was devastating. At the beginning of the following fall, they had lost 46 of the original 102 who sailed on the Mayflower. But the harvest of 1621 was a bountiful one.
And the remaining colonists decided to celebrate with a feast — including 91 Native Americans who helped the Pilgrims survive their first year.
